Just because your wood fence looks good in the sun, doesn’t mean it’s in tip top shape! Here’s a tip on maintaining your fence this summer (original article from referwork.com):
Look at the entire fencing and also the end cuts. For split-rail fencing, pay particular attention to the post tops since these collect water and have a tendency to begin to soften, and deteriorate. These areas can be treated to help prolong the fence life. But you will have to determine whether staining or painting is necessary for appearance and function. Some additional preparation might be called for, such as sanding by mechanical means.
